Bidache - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques

Bidache village enjoys a rich history.

Former Duchy, former Principality, the footprint of the Dukes of Gramont remains pervasive in that territory, as evidenced by the magnificent ruins of the castle fortress (twelfth-eighteenth century), Historical Monument. You can visit from April to October and enjoy the many summer events in this beautiful setting.

Let you also tell the stories of the village of Bidache on Wednesdays in July and August at 17h, through the Country raconteur. Here you will find a remarkable heritage, notably with the parish church of Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur-nineteenth century, which contains the tomb of the Dukes of Gramont.

Pacing the Rue Saint-Jacques you will discover the old houses that remind Bidache that was an independent principality until 1789, with developed business.

Visit the old port and stepped stroll on the old towpath along the Bidouze.

Do not miss the bridge Gramont, the Jewish cemetery, the fountain, traditional houses, the old covered way, the old synagogue, the stele stonemasons, or the deck of Lihoury.
